"Night Sail" is an aluminum and steel collage of different elements that include nautical forms assembled on a common frame coated with enveloping black matte paint which Nevelson once described as an "aristocratic" color. According to Nevelson, the title alludes to the expansiveness of the sea that reminded her of the open vistas she saw during a visit to Bunker Hill. "Night Sail" is located in the plaza joining two office towers designed by Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill. 30'h x 20w' x 9'd and weighing 33 tons, "Night Sail" is the only major work of outdoor sculpture in Los Angeles by Louise Nevelson.
